Modern humanity with some 5,000 years of recorded history has been experiencing growing pains, with no end in sight. It is high time for humanity to grow up and to transcend itself by embracing transhumanism. Transhumanism offers the most inclusive ideology for all ethnicities and races, the religious and the atheists, conservatives and liberals, the young and the old regardless of socioeconomic status, gender identity, or any other individual qualities. This book expounds on contemporary views and practical advice from more than 70 transhumanists. Astronaut Neil Armstrong said on the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969, ´´One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.´´ Transhumanism is the next logical step in the evolution of humankind, and it is the existential solution to the long-term survival of the human race.
´´It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.´´- Charles Darwin As the industry is moving towards maximum digitization there is a consensus that DevOps practices help you deliver software faster, more reliable, and with fewer errors. So, whether you are from the Business side or technical side; DevOps have to be your way forward. DevOps is a set of practices and cultural values that have been proven to help organizations of all sizes improve their software release cycles, software quality, security, and ability to get rapid feedback on product development. This book is aimed at Consultant, Project Manager and people from techno-commercial profile who would be explaining the benefits of DevOps to the client, internal leadership or project teams. As the crux of DevOps methodology lies in the cultural transformation of the organization, people who are stakeholders in shaping this change must understand the overall alignment of business goals with this methodology. You would get to explore: What is DevOps A relationship between Agile, Scrum, Kanban and DevOps DevOps Adoption: Organizational cultural Change DevOps Ecosystem Emerging Trends DevOps success stories In the Bonus Booklet you will find out: DevOps Job Market overview Insights into DevOps job application People to follow on twitter
This book distils into a single coherent handbook all the essentials of process automation at a depth sufficient for most practical purposes. No other book covers the gap between the theory and practice of control systems so comprehensively.
Are you a non-coder looking for insight into DevOps, Microservices Architecture and Kubernetes? As the industry is moving towards maximum digitization there is a consensus that DevOps practices help you deliver software faster, more reliable, and with fewer errors. You may be a consultant, Advisor, Project Manager or a novice into IT industry; after going through this guide you would be able to appreciate DevOps, Microservices and other related concepts like Kanban,Scrum, Agile, SOA, Monolith Architecture, DevOps, Docker, Kubernetes etc. You would also get to know about the leaders in DevOps and Microservices adoption and impact it had on the overall agility and hyper-growth of the adopters. This book covers the complete lifecycle for your understanding like Integrating, Testing, Deploying DevOps and Microservices architecture and the Security concerns while deploying it. I am confident that after going through the book you would be able to navigate the discussion with any stakeholder and take your agenda ahead as per your role. Additionally, if you are new to the industry, and looking for an application development job, this book will help you to prepare with all the relevant information and understanding of the topic. ** I am also providing additional booklet containing all the relevant news, trends, and resources for DevOps and Microservices Architecture.
Data compression is one of the most important fields and tools in modern computing. From archiving data, to CD-ROMs, and from coding theory to image analysis, many facets of modern computing rely upon data compression. This book provides a comprehensive reference for the many different types and methods of compression. Included are a detailed and helpful taxonomy, analysis of most common methods, and discussions on the use and comparative benefits of methods and description of ´´how to´´ use them. Detailed descriptions and explanations of the most well-known and frequently used compression methods are covered in a self-contained fashion, with an accessible style and technical level for specialists and non-specialists.
A valuable reference for the novice as well as for the expert who needs a wider scope of coverage within the area of cryptography, this book provides easy and rapid access of information and includes more than 200 algorithms and protocols; more than 200 tables and figures; more than 1,000 numbered definitions, facts, examples, notes, and remarks; and over 1,250 significant references, including brief comments on each paper. Cryptography, in particular public-key cryptography, has emerged an important discipline that is not only the subject of an enormous amount of research, but provides the foundation for information security in many applications. This title provides a treatment that introduces the practical aspects of both conventional and public-key cryptography.
- This much-anticipated revision, written by the ultimate group of top security experts in the world, features 40 percent new content on how to find security holes in any operating system or application - New material addresses the many new exploitation techniques that have been discovered since the first edition, including attacking ´´unbreakable´´ software packages such as McAfee´s Entercept, Mac OS X, XP, Office 2003, and Vista - Also features the first-ever published information on exploiting Cisco´s IOS, with content that has never before been explored - The companion Web site features downloadable code files The black hats have kept up with security enhancements. Have you? In the technological arena, three years is a lifetime. Since the first edition of this book was published in 2004, built-in security measures on compilers and operating systems have become commonplace, but are still far from perfect. Arbitrary-code execution vulnerabilities still allow attackers to run code of their choice on your system--with disastrous results. In a nutshell, this book is about code and data and what happens when the two become confused. You´ll work with the basic building blocks of security bugs--assembler, source code, the stack, the heap, and so on. You´ll experiment, explore, and understand the systems you´re running--and how to better protect them. * Become familiar with security holes in Windows, Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, and Cisco´s IOS * Learn how to write customized tools to protect your systems, not just how to use ready-made ones * Use a working exploit to verify your assessment when auditing a network * Use proof-of-concept exploits to rate the significance of bugs in software you´re developing * Assess the quality of purchased security products by performing penetration tests based on the information in this book * Understand how bugs are found and how exploits work at the lowest level
´´We´re all safer when the systems we depend upon are inspectable, auditable, and documented - and this definitely includes cars.´´ - Chris Evans, hacker and founder of Project Zero Modern cars are more computerized than ever. Infotainment and navigation systems, Wi-Fi, automatic software updates, and other innovations aim to make driving more convenient. But vehicle technologies haven´t kept pace with today´s more hostile security environment, leaving millions vulnerable to attack. The Car Hacker´s Handbook will give you a deeper understanding of the computer systems and embedded software in modern vehicles. It begins by examining vulnerabilities and providing detailed explanations of communications over the CAN bus and between devices and systems. Then, once you have an understanding of a vehicle´s communication network, you´ll learn how to intercept data and perform specific hacks to track vehicles, unlock doors, glitch engines, flood communication, and more. With a focus on low-cost, open source hacking tools such as Metasploit, Wireshark, Kayak, can-utils, and ChipWhisperer, The Car Hacker´s Handbook will show you how to: - Build an accurate threat model for your vehicle - Reverse engineer the CAN bus to fake engine signals - Exploit vulnerabilities in diagnostic and data-logging systems - Hack the ECU and other firmware and embedded systems - Feed exploits through infotainment and vehicle-to-vehicle communication systems - Override factory settings with performance-tuning techniques - Build physical and virtual test benches to try out exploits safely If you´re curious about automotive security and have the urge to hack a two-ton computer, make The Car Hacker´s Handbook your first stop.
